Porcelain Veneers – Just Like Natural Teeth!
Are your teeth stained, discolored, decayed, cracked, or worn down? Whether it’s due to unfortunate life circumstances or poor oral hygiene, veneers are a great option to fix damaged teeth. Not only will veneers improve how you look, but they will also help your teeth be more protected and strong.
What Are Veneers?
Veneers are a thin shell that covers the natural tooth and protects and supports it. Not only do veneers improve the function of your teeth, but they also improve the appearance. Using materials such as composite resin or porcelain, veneers are tooth-colored and look just like real teeth!
Types of Veneers
There are two different types of veneers. Composite veneers and porcelain veneers. While both have their benefits, porcelain is particularly great because they imitate the look of a natural tooth surface. Not only this, but they are almost one step above tooth enamel in that they don’t change color over time.
Benefits of Veneers
Porcelain veneers are beautiful and they are strong. They can help protect your teeth from tooth decay, grinding of teeth, staining, and more. Veneers are cost-effective and can last for your years and years. The best way to make your veneers last a long time is to make sure you’re brushing and flossing daily. The average set of veneers lasts anywhere between 5 and 7 years but those who have taken the best care of them have gotten there to last up to 15 years. It all depends on the time and care you’re willing to invest in.
Care For Your Oral Health!
Just because you have gone through the veneering process doesn’t mean you should forget about your oral health. You can still get gum disease and have other issues if you aren’t paying proper attention to your teeth.
